Boost Your Nutrition Intake with #AztecGold Chia Seeds

I love Chia Seeds!
So when I was asked to review Aztec Gold Chia Seeds I was excited and intrigued. I've only eaten one brand of Chia Seeds.
So I was anxious to compare the two.

Chia Seeds have become the new hot topic for health, due to their exceptional nutritional value....
- Higher than flax seeds in OMEGA-3 & 6 essential fatty acids
- Provides 18 amino acids including Lysine and Arginine
- Helps with skin and scalp care because it is a source of Proline, the major constituent of COLLAGEN.
- Great source of Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium, and Phosphorus, plus the trace elements Zinc, Copper, Manganese, Iron, Boron and Strontium.

Here's a great article on 7 Health Benefits of Chia Seeds

Aztec Gold is a premium source of Chia  - they supply straight from the farm manufacturer and offer these benefits versus other brands:

Proprietary cleaning process

- we reject 70% of all seeds delivered to factory
- 99.99% pure
- Only the cleanest handling and shipping container procedures
Fully Certified – each lot is lab certified so you get repeatable, high quality Chia seeds 

- ISO 9001:2008
- Certified Kosher
- One of the only Chia manufacturers with BRC Global Standard for Food Safety Certification
- Each individual shipment is tested by an accredited US laboratory before it is released from their facility.
Product of the original and premier Chia growing region – Jalisco, Mexico

-  High altitude, rich climate and red soil – the best combination for high quality Chia
-  Direct from farm source– packaged where it is grown
-  North American local – not sent via sea so no salt water contamination
-  Optimum grain size – minimal seed discoloration

Not only did Aztec Gold Chia Seeds surpass the Chia seeds
 I have been eating with their premium benefits,
 but they tasted much fresher too.
They come in small packages,
 since you use them up quicker
than larger bags they don't go stale.

I have yogurt for breakfast each morning
with Chia Seeds sprinkled in.

Just mix them up and your good to go.
I like the texture and crunchiness they add.
I also like them sprinkled on salads, just about anything really.
A more natural way to boost your nutrition intake than pills.

The smaller packets are convenient to slip into your purse
if you'd like to add some while eating out.

You can find Aztec Gold Chia Seeds
on their website.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free or a discounted price from Minimus.biz . Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

#reachergrabber Reach it Grab it - reacher grabber pick stick Review

I was excited to be chosen to review this product.
I'm 5' and have trouble reaching just about anything above the lower shelf of my kitchen cabinets.

 I even teeter over the side of the washer
to grab that last piece of clothing!
At the store? Well, I climb the shelves to
get the item I'm looking for,
which seems to almost always on the top shelf! LOL

But most of all I wanted my daughter to have this.
She has been diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylitis
and it's very painful for her to bend over to pick things up.

She loves it!
The  Reacher Grabber Pickup Tool has been a Godsend.
It works flawlessly for her.
It's easy to operate with the strong
grip handle.

The swivel head makes it so easy to
pick up items in tight spaces.

This product is a lifesaver for someone
who has difficulty reaching or bending.
It's construction is very durable
and can easily pick up large to small items.  

The non-slip jaws are simply amazing!

Between the two of us, I'm definitely
 going to need to buy one for me :)

Leven Rose Rosehip Seed Oil Review #RosehipOil

Leven Rose Rosehip Seed Oil

OK I have to confess, on my first try I may have been a little heavy handed...... I wasn't paying full attention to what I was doing.  
The dogs felt I must have forgotten how to tell time.
They were jumping up and down, talking (yes, they do talk) and telling me it was way past dinner time. Heaven forbid, I was 15 minutes late!

Pardon me for digressing ~

Back to where I was.
 I  applied a tad too much oil on my first try, OK.
When I realized what I had done,
 I then applied the ''extra'' on my arms, hands
and especially on my dry cuticles.

After all was said and done,
I was surprised at how my face, arms
and hands ~ especially the inside of my hands ~
didn't feel greasy as I had expected them to feel!
This oil is light and quickly absorbed.  

The next and following nights, I applied just a few
drops to my face and massaged in gently. 
 The consistency is really nice and the smell is mild.

It left my face feeling soft and smooth.
Again I was very impressed at how non-oily this oil is, 
my face wasn't left feeling greasy and it didn't clog my pores. 
This oil smoothed out some of my wrinkles - it is super rich
and I could feel the difference almost instantly
as I massaged it in.
My skin looked hydrated in the morning,
which can be a challenge sometimes.

I've incorporated it to my nighttime skin care routine
and plan to continue using it.

The bottle will definitely last awhile because a little goes a long way ;) . It includes a dropper lid to make dispensing easy.
I've received compliments on my complexion since using
Leven Rose Rosehip Seed Oil, which are always nice to receive.  

Product Description

Rosehips are cultivated in the mountains of Chile, where they are grown free of pesticides and fertilizers to the keep the plants 100% organic. Packaged in the USA.

Immediately after harvesting the rosehips, the seeds are removed, and are cold pressed. Cold pressing of the seeds keeps the oil in its purest form, leaving all of the essential components of the oil intact, and undisturbed.

We never refine our Rosehip Oil. Although some prefer refined rosehip oil, because it takes some of the color and smell out of the oil, it also removes a great amount of the essential fatty acids found naturally in this wonderful oil. The oil is quickly packaged to prevent oxidation.

When applying our organic Rosehip Oil to your skin, you will notice the rejuvenating effects taking place. You will notice the Rosehip Oil quickly soaks into your skin, which has earned it the name "a dry oil", meaning it doesn't feel greasy.
